Football loss doesn’t taint Homecoming spirit

Oct 23, 2023

The Vikings met their match in battle at the Homecoming football game on Friday, Oct. 20.

Wareham High School faced off against South Shore Vocational Technical High School, who are also known as the Vikings, and the bleachers were packed with families and friends excited to support their team.

However, Wareham lost the game 28-43, which Head Coach Brandon Perry said he was “not very happy” about.

Perry said although the seniors played a great game and continued to lead their team, some of the younger players still need to “step up and follow their lead.”

He said, “It was pretty frustrating to be honest. I think we made some mistakes early and then compounded them too with some penalties. I think that put us on our back foot for a good portion of the game.”

Perry added, “I think we played well, but just not well enough to win.”

However, he said the Homecoming energy was great.

“I think there hasn't been really much energy around this program for the last six to 10 years,” Perry added. “So to even have some energy around Homecoming, whether it's a win or a loss, I think is great for the community, for the kids and for the team.”
